i got a bc296d years ago
it wound up sitting for quite awhile due to work demands
i'd now like to get it fired back up
i don't have any of my old software
i've also upgraded to windows 10
i'm not having any luck finding a program that will work
i'm also having problems with trying to connect my new pc to the bc296d
i have that old cable and i also got a usb adapter for it
do you have any advice on how i can get this back up and running?
this would be just like starting from the beggining for me
i want to go back to using software to load/ unload the scanner with things
I just use the BC296D/BC796D SS Scanner Control and Database Software that came with
the scanner. You can download it from Uniden, along with the manuals.
The cable might be a little more difficult. The end that plugs into the scanner is like none other I have seen. I can take a picture if you think it will help you identify the correct cable.
I have not used mine lately as it seems as if the local authorities (Hays County, Buda) have gone to encrypted communications.
i've gone to seeing if i can get a free s-ware dload
i did manage a demo of arc250
now i'm trying to see if i can find a driver
sitll have the old rs232 but with the early usb adapter/ cord
on win 10, as mentioned
would like to see if i can get current driver
if i can actually make what i've got, work
if i can at least get it to communicate
then i'd be good to try to learn, on it, again
otherwise, if too problematic, i'll sell and move on
i'll probably take a big loss on this, too
unless i can make it do something interesting
